Paying off, recoiling and upcoiling
During paying off, the Umlauf Bridle applies the desired / required back-tension to the strip. This is particularly important when paying off thick strip.
During recoiling, the strip is being decoupled from the previous process.
During upcoiling, the Umlauf Bridle serves as a braking unit.
During paying off:
- Smooth and quick threading thanks to the exclusively linear movement
- Relief of the drives in downstream processing units, especially when dealing with thick strips
- Linear strip transport without deflection
- Controlled setting of the correct strip back-tension over the entire width of the strip
